News from Mrs. Nowak - May 14

Reported by on 5/14/18

To say a mere THANK YOU, does not capture the gratitude our staff has to all the parents and families who made Teacher Appreciation Week so special. A SHOUT OUT goes to Tonia Brock, MaryBeth Satvedi, Terri Foley, Helen Huang, and all the volunteers who made the week one to remember. We enjoyed breakfast items, flowers, special notes, sweet treats, popcorn, manicures and so much more!!! Thank you for making us feel so special and appreciated! It is a GREAT day to be a Welch White Tiger!

One Week Building Closure in July...During the summer, the district will be working on our 4th phase of classroom air conditioning. This phase will require power to be shut off to our building during the week of July 16 - 20. We encourage you to handle any school business outside of that week. More information to come.

Chromebook Roll Out - coming in August… We are proud and excited to announce the district’s continued roll out of one-to-one technology for our students in grades 2-5 for next school year. This year, our 2nd grade teachers and students have piloted the use of this tool and have embedded it into our instruction in meaningful and exciting ways. Welch is providing staff professional development this spring and before the students return in the fall so our teachers/students are ready to hit the ground running in the fall. This initiative will also make our current laptops more available for our students in grades K-1, making it a WIN WIN for all! More information to come!

Field Day… Welch’s Field Day is coming up on Thursday, May 31st! Our theme this year is Dr. Seuss, and we are looking for volunteers to help make this day a success! Please see attached link if you are interested in helping out on this fun filled day!
